98 ktm exc 380 plated
I am really happy with it.
I also have a 98 Cr500.
The KTM has plenty of power and a bit more forgiving than the thrill ride of the Honda.
Both are keepers for me.

This thing is bloody brilliant once I put a decent pipe on it.

Let's go Old School here. This is a bike My Dad and I built this winter. He did most of the work and it turned out great. These were great woods weapons back in their day. I can remember a local pro winning the overall several times at the harescrambles near us when these were new. I have always wanted one . The frame is yellow due to it being powder coated before we got it.

Seeing this post is in the Old's Cool section, I gotta post this pic.

1976 Penton Cross Country 250.

And here is a bit more old school. I have several more to post...but first have to get the pics on photobucket.

This one is a 1972 Penton Berkshire 100 that belongs to a friend of mine. His dad was the original owner - bought it new in 1972 - still has the original sales receipt! This is the very bike my buddy learned to ride on when he was a kid. Full restoration was done in 2011.

And here is another one of a great friend of mine, known around the Michigan D14 Enduro series as Young Ted. Here he is at age 83, aboard his 1977 Penton GS6 250. He was the prior owner of my 76 Penton (which he bought used in 1977). Ted still competes in various D14 Enduros - did the Jackpine in 2011 in fact. He and I are planning on riding the Michigan Cross Country Cycle trail next year, on our Pentons. A couple years ago he and I rode the entire trail (652 miles in 5 days), him on his Penton the entire time. I had planned on doing the same on my Penton, but a boned head move on my part resulted in me having to use my modern bike the first 3 days of the ride.

And this one is of another friend on his 1978 Yamaha IT175 doing what it was built for:
